Incredible Hulk and Wolverine #1 - John Byrne cover

John Byrne
Incredible Hulk and Wolverine v1 #1, 1986 - Capitalizing on Wolverine's growing popularity, Marvel reprints his first appearance in Incredible Hulk #180 and his first full appearance in Incredible Hulk #181. Also included is a Wolverine & Hercules tale from Marvel Treasury #26. John Byrne provides a new wrap-around cover, but his efforts are watered down by insensitive inking. The delineation of Wendigo looks especially weak. Other artists in this issue include Herb Trimpe and George Perez (both reprints). This is number 1 of 1 Incredible Hulk and Wolverine issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne, Wolverine or Incredible Hulk issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.

  1. Jack Abel's inks could be heavy and dark, but he was the original inker on the stories within.
